2016 Championship Min Woo Lee, 17, of Australia holed a 3 1/2-foot putt on the 35th hole to edge Texan Noah Goodwin, 2 and 1, in the 36-hole final match at The Honors Course in Ooltewah, Tenn. The putt came after a 47-minute weather delay and it allowed Lee to make USGA history as the first Australian-born Junior Amateur champion. He also joined older sister Minjee as the only brother-sister combo to have won USGA Junior titles. Minjee, a multiple-time winner on the LPGA Tour, won the U.S. Girls' Junior in 2012. 
Quotable “I'm down in history on the USGA Junior trophy, so it feels really good. It's probably the best I've ever felt. It's a dream come true for me. I've always wanted to win this tournament. I was in good form coming into it. I knew I had a good chance. It feels great to win and be on the trophy with names such as Tiger [Woods].” -- Min Woo Lee
